    ^ The Leydon Last: the crepe sole of lasts. I'm pretty sure I couldn't even fit into a bespoke Leydon last (I realize that defies logic)

    Cross-posted from the thrifting thread - here's my haul from today, which included two pairs of Aldens. They look like shell cordovan but was wondering what the Alden experts thought:

    Good haul today - EG for RLPL plain toe with elastic side gussets in what I think is burnt pine; Berluti brogued loafers; two pair of burgundy Alden loafers - a full-strap and tassel loafer, I think both are cordovan; and a pair of tassel loafers from Grenson for Paul Stuart; and - the real shocker - all in my size (US 10), although its probably all going to eBay. Also found $1.00 ties from Polo Ralph Lauren, Hermes, and Turnbull & Asser, and a pair of PRL suspenders:

    Now I'm not sure if I like those more or the cigar you posted the other day more. Both gorgeous.
